Scientists Find Way to Convert Bad Body Fat Into Good Fat

Working in mice, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have identified a way to convert white fat, which stores calories, into brown fat that burns them.

Leading Researchers Explore Boundaries of Biological Science at Inaugural Symposium of Allen Discovery Center at Tufts University

Eight researchers in the vanguard of biological science gathered at the inaugural symposium of the new Allen Discovery Center at Tufts University today to explore new frontiers within the dark matter of biology. The day-long symposium, which attracted guest speakers from leading research institutions such as Tufts, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Jackson Labs, was expected to draw about 300 attendees.

A Look Back at the 2017 i.Lab Incubator

The i.Lab Incubator, housed at the W.L. Lyons Brown III i.Lab and operated by the University of Virginia Darden School of Business‘ Batten Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, recently wrapped up its intensive, 10-week 2017 program. More than 20 ventures, founded by students from schools across UVA as well as members of the local community, completed the program.

Nonlinear Physics Bridges Thoughts to Sounds in Birdsong

Physicist Gabriel Mindlin has been looking at the phenomena from what is one of the most unifying and potentially enlightening perspectives of the issue: the dynamical physics of birds’ vocal organs. In his work, published this week in the journal Chaos, he explores the role of fundamental physics properties in the acoustic complexity of birdsong, and the relationship they have with neural instructions for their production.

How to Remove a Tick and Prevent Future Bites

As tick populations grow and spread across the country, their prevalence is increasing the public’s risk for some troubling diseases. Of these diseases, say dermatologists from the American Academy of Dermatology, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Powassan virus and alpha-gal syndrome—a mysterious red meat allergy—are among the most serious.

Running Roaches, Flapping Moths Create a New Physics of Organisms

Sand-swimming lizards, slithering robotic snakes, dusk-flying moths and running roaches all have one thing in common: They're increasingly being studied by physicists interested in understanding the shared strategies these creatures have developed to overcome the challenges of moving though their environments.

One Step Closer to Lifelike Robots

Researchers at Columbia Engineering have developed a 3D-printable synthetic soft muscle that can lift 1,000 times its own weight. The muscle has intrinsic expansion ability and, unlike previous artificial muscles, it does not require an external compressor or high voltage equipment, signaling a breakthrough in the creation of soft robots that can move independently. The new material also has a strain density – an ability to expand – that is 15 times larger than natural muscle.

The Sublime Challenge of Jet Noise

Joe Nichols, of the University of Minnesota, is using ALCF resources to create high fidelity simulations of jet turbulence to determine how and where noise is produced. The results may lead to novel engineering designs that reduce noise over commercial flight paths and on aircraft carrier decks.

DNA Triggers Shape-Shifting in Hydrogels, Opening a New Way to Make ‘Soft Robots’

Biochemical engineers at the Johns Hopkins University have used sequences of DNA molecules to induce shape-changing in water-based gels, demonstrating a new tactic to produce “soft” robots and “smart” medical devices that do not rely on cumbersome wires, batteries or tethers.
